Detailing can make the difference in creating custom drapery magic in your home. Peddler Interiors designer Jerome Farris takes us along for custom drapes and window treatment installation day at a stunning custom home in The Grove neighborhood outside of Nashville in Williamson County.
Gorgeous, custom window treatments bring so much personality to a home,” Farris said. “When building a new home, draperies should be part of the overall design and construction plan. The exciting part of our Peddler full spectrum of services is the variety of help we offer from the creation and design of a custom home to helping with an existing home’s draperies using our huge selection of fabrics and ideas.
Farris shares six unique touches for the custom drape window treatments which really add a wow factor to a home.
- Add a decorative band to a drapery panel.
- Old World fonts bring incredible charm to an embroidered valance.
- Café curtains create a private master bath space without compromising sunlight.
- Double layering custom drapes is a charming European design that brings unique character to window treatments.
- Use a curved valance to complement a curved window arch and why not add some fun bling!
- Italian stringing can be the secret for an elegant, custom touch.
Here’s more behind the magic of drapery installation day.
Traveling abroad, Farris was impressed by a double layering technique he found in Florence, Italy. Working with his long-time creative partner Diane Preston, of Diane’s Interior Creations, Farris created a faux Roman shade layered with a gorgeous valance and added decorative nail head embellishments with a clever way to conceal the work on the back. Farris and Preston also used small, custom details like an Old World font for a monogrammed valance to make a big impact in valances added to the master bath and a teenage girl’s reading room.
Seeing in person can really help inspire a design project Farris said. The Peddler Interiors fabric and upholstery room at their Murfreesboro show room has an impressive array of choices from Zoffany & Scalamandre to Lee Jofa and Schumacher & more.
